Youth and young adults are often untapped resources when we think about community building. Instead of being included, youth and young adults ages 12 to 24 are generally considered to be people who do not yet develop many assets to contribute and are empty vessels that need to be filled. This plays out in many negative ways for young people and especially black and brown people. Young people tend to be disproportionally stopped by police and searched and situations often escalate resulting in arrests. The over-saturation of police in schools (School Resource Officers) results in more youth being arrested for actions that should be dealt with by teachers or administrators. Young people have much to contribute. Their youthful energy and idealism can be put to good use in communities. Many of them already have skills and gifts in the arts, athletics, have given countless hours of community service. College students and young graduates are excited about giving back.

Inspired by an article by John McKnight, ABCD Steward, Jess Wyatt, developed the foundations for a workshop rooted in ABCD principles and practices for the broader ABCD community. Friendship as Foundation - Softening the boundaries between Being and Doing in relationship with others and yourself is a month-long online transformational experience where participants will leave feeling more aligned and energetic in their mind, body, and spirit through a practice of nurturing friendship and physical movement.
